Scarcliffe Primary School

Strive to Shine

At Scarcliffe Primary School we really value our pupil's views.  One way in which we gather their views and ideas is by having a school council.  The president and vice president were voted for by the pupils a democratic voting system.  They then advertised the roles that were available in school and interviews took place to get the right people for each role.


Meet our School Councillors:

Democratic Vote:

In order to choose our School Council President and Vice President, we held and election in school.  All candidates had a week to put a campaign together and delivered speeches to the rest of the children in a special assembly.  

After counting the votes we found out that Lois and Harry were chosen for the roles.  

Following the vote, it was time to advertise for the roles we needed filling.  

Lois and Harry then interviewed the candidates based on their application forms and appointed the new school council.

School Charity:

In recent years we set ourselves the target to raise lots of money for charities.  Amazingly, we managed to raise a staggering £1214.69 for Ashgate Hospice and over £1000 for Macmillan Cancer Support!  Well done to the children who organised the events and the school community for their support.  


Children in Need:

 Soon we will be taking part in Children in Need day.  Leila and Joshua will have the job to make the day fun and memorable while making money for the charity. 


Progress made this year:

Update from Evalyn and Maddox (21.3.22)

As you know, the reward councillors (Leah and James ) have got a new attendance teddy called Eddy the Teddy and they have also planned Dojo Treat Day . Also, they have done a decorating contest for Easter and ordered a petting zoo for dojo day that children can spend their dojo points on.

The Fundraiser councillors have also done a little power point about a big summer marathon/event but we still don’t know the exact date but it will close to the end of the year we think.

The sport councillors have been doing certificates in assembly each week for people who have been taking part in their activities in the right way.  They have bought some new stickers to have with the certificates as well.

The reading councillors have planned out World Book Day and have recommended some books for all classes.

That’s it for now you can check out more by going to class dojo and seeing what all classes have done this past year.
